Tie Down Roping
Tie Down Roping at the Payson Rodeo
In tie down roping, a calf is released, and a cowboy on his horse takes off out of the chute. The cowboy has to rope the calf, dismount, get the calf on its side, and tie any three legs together. This is a timed event, where the horse also plays an important role in keeping the rope taught so the cowboy can grab the calf.
